“I’d rather like to have children,” Prince William told Kate Couric during the ABC special The Julibee Queen.
The heir to the British throne, however, is at a turning point in his life: he has to decide whether he will take another tour of duty with the Royal Air Force or leave the military to focus full-time on his royal duties.
“I’m still trying to decide,” said the 29-year-old prince. “It’s a really difficult one because I really enjoy my time in the Air Force. But the pressures of my other life are building, and fighting them off or balancing the two of them has proven quite difficult. More importantly, I’d rather like to have children.”
William married Kate Middleton, 30, in April 2011. “I’m just very keen to have a family and both Catherine and I are looking forward to having a family in the future,” William added. When in the future? “You won’t get anything out of me,” he told Katie Couric. “Tight-lipped.”
